The area is great but the schools around there are not. You can choose another school, however you might have to pay. Check with DISD.

I show something like $750/year ballpark. The specific ones for this home are not listed.

Any home that looks or feels like this in this area should have some type of HOA dues. Typically if they are lower like this you might pay all your own utilities and building insurance. Some that are higher might include water/sewer/trash and building insurance or exterior repairs.

Let me know if you would like to see inside.

Here are some others in the area you might also like.

This is a monthly fee for services, maintance & utilities. But not always for all properties. Ths is an older property and condos will sometimes do a special assessment to all owners for whatever repairs/improvements a majority of the owners vote To approve. When buying a condo you are marrying all the other owners and hopefully the are reasonable and workable bunch. It can be a nightmare and it can be heaven, choose wisely where you buy. ... more

Hi Sabrina. Chuni is correct. The school district does not go by zip codes or even city limits (some areas of Highland Park are in Dallas ISD). The property you are asking about is NOT in the HPISD. Check out this link for a map as well as a quick way to find homes for sale or lease in HPISD.

Hi there,

From my latest experience, its about 60-90 days. If its price right, I had sold one in 7 days last month and they are closing in 2 weeks!

It is important to talk to a professional to have your unit price right, and stage the property.

Please contact me if you like to get some CMA report and need tips getting your place ready to sell.

Thanks and good luck!

Hi Jan,

Oak Lawn is pretty much South of Avondale / Fitzhugh and uptown is East of Oaklawn to Central 75. There really isn't any official boundaries but I hope this helps.

HOA fees are a always have to check to see what value they provide and consider what you value. Some of the more expensive ones, may include security, concierge, pool, gym. Never go to the gym, then you're paying for something you don't need. Never use the pool...same thing. Don't value a view....then don't live in a high rise as you will be paying for elevator maintenance and window cleaners. There are HOAs that don't have those amenities. If you do value them, then they might be worth paying for. Maybe cheaper to share pool expenses than buy a house with a pool.

My thought is over time people want to be closer to amenities, don't have time to take care of a yard and pool themselves and if gas prices rise much more than $4/gal people will want to live in the city, close to work, or near a commuter line. We're starting to see the foreclosures shake out when people paid crazy prices.....for what I've seen some sell for lately, it is under the replacement costs. Seems like prices are starting to go back up.

Hi Kevin,

There are many great residential buildings in the area. My suggestions for a short term lease (6-12) before purchasing are The Ashton, Glass House, and 1900 McKinney. Each of these properties are with in walking distance to the Crescent as well as offer luxury apartments with concierge service and great social atomspheres.

These properties start at abour $1,700 for a 1/1 and go all the way up to $8,000 for a 3/3 and everything in between.

For purchase, depending your price range and wish list there are a handful of luxury residential highrises in the immediate area. Azure, One Arts Plaza, The W, etc.

If I can further assist you, I can be reached on my cell: 972.302.8327.

My opinion is for you to ask current residents what they think of the place and make your decision based on that. They are the only ones who can give you an honest opinion on the matter.

Are you looking to live there a few years and then sell for a profit or are you looking to stay there for 6+ years?

Ask yourself what your priorities are and make a pros and cons list after speaking with the current residents.

Good Luck!
